Summary

In the futurefantasy world of RWBY, Rooster Teeth's hit animated webseries, teens train to become warriors. Join the fight in this epic official, original novel from E.C. Myers and RWBY's head writers! 

Trouble is brewing.... 

After Beacon Academy fell, Coco, Fox, Velvet, and Yatsuhashi made a vow: No one else is getting left behind. It's been more than a year since Team CFVY saw their school destroyed by the creatures of Grimm, their friends felled in battle or scattered across the world of Remnant. Since then, they've been settling into life at Shade Academy in Vacuo, fighting hard to finish their training so they can find their friends and save their world. 

When a distress message comes into Shade, asking for huntsmen and huntresses to defend refugees from a never-ending stream of Grimm, Team CFVY answers the call without hesitation. But in the heat of the desert, they're forced to relive their former battles, both from the fall of Beacon and from everything that came before. 

Don't miss this exclusive original story straight from awardwinning author E.C. Myers and RWBY's head writers, Kerry Shawcross and Miles Luna!

Good for Rwby fans

Team CFVY is very under used in the series itself so I was incredibly excited that they would get a spin off storyline. It ties in nicely and covers a lot of in between scenes from the series.

The writing itself isn’t anything spectacular, but I still enjoyed it. My only complaint is how often the word “said” proceeds dialogue. It started to get cringey with “Velvet said”, “Fox said”, “Yatsu said”, and “Coco said” literally back to back during a discussion segment.

A Fantastic Story from a Fantastic Series

All I can say without spoiling the story is that its well written, the narrator is very clear and plays each character she reads correctly and made me can't wait for the next book in the series to listen to. I'm already starting my 3rd time listening to the story

Fun, easy read

The writing is made for a younger audience, so there is plenty of room for more description and detail. The overall story was very fun and gave a lot of neat new insight into team CFVY. Hopefully more books like this will be put out.

Amazing. Felt just like watching the show

Everything about this was perfect the story and tone felt just like an season of rwby, only even better because its PACKED with lore and backstory. Very well written, and well preformed. The narraotor did a really good job capturing the original voices, even matching the tone and influxes of characters from flashbacks.

Not bad, drags a lot

CFVYs backstory is the most interesting part of the book, well put together and has a lot of good, heartfelt moments. The main story starts awkwardly and out of the blue in the first chapter with no real attachment formed to the characters. Things get interesting later on, but it's about the halfway mark it gets engaging.
Performances are strictly okay, I wound up mixing characters several times for their similar voices and there's not much passion in any of the roles outside of RWBY cameos. Acceptable narration, but not stellar.
Writing needs more words than "said" to cap off character speaking, too. Groan, bemoan, Whisper, growl, mutter, titter excitedly, ultimately just open a thesaurus, please, if there was a drinking game around "said" I'd have alcohol poisoning by chapter 2. Just because it's Scholastic doesn't mean it shouldn't be creative in the writing style.
3/5 book, don't intend to get any follow ups when it takes 3 hours to get into the main story as it is.

Great expansion on team CFVY

This book had some real high points but was often just ok. I loved the expansion on the backstories of this team of minor characters from RWBY and all the flashback scenes were gripping and intriguing. That said, the main story rarely held my attention and it didn’t help that the audiobook narrator gave several characters very similar voices so I often had a hard time knowing who was speaking. Still, I’m interim reading/listening to the next book to see where these characters go next and I hope it improves upon the issues I had with this one.
